healthy protein smoothie recipes

There are lots of good reasons to incorporate a smoothie into your daily routine: It can help prevent dehydration, keep you feeling satisfied for longer, control cravings and help with digestion. Smoothies can also be a great source of antioxidants.

One of the best things about smoothies is that you can incorporate ingredients that will enhance not only the flavors, but the nutrition value as well. Want some healthy heart benefits? Add some walnuts. Need minerals like iron, copper and zinc? Throw in a handful a spinach.

And then there’s chocolate. Just because they taste indulgent doesn’t mean that chocolate protein smoothies can’t be healthy!
